Obedient Equations for Obedient Matter

Either/Or Logic works great with Unchanging Atoms

Each Proton & Neutron, the building blocks of Atoms, are Identical.

Atomic Nucleus has Energy Fields with Electrons, which give off Photons

Electrons & Photons as Information Packets to differentiate them from Waves & Particles

Each Electron & Photon are Identical

Permanent Essences of 4 subatomics perfect fit for Set Logic, hence Obedient Equations

Endless Scientific Triumphs validate the notion that obedient equations govern the material universe.

The Interactive Nature of Living Matter includes Self-Reflection, hence Disobedient Equations.

Although the Subatomics are Unitary, the Material World is not.

Obedient Equations adhere to either/or logic. Disobedient Equations are self-referential.

Self-referential Disobedient Equations best describe Life’s self-referential nature.

Matter and Obedient Equations are a perfect fit due to 4 unitary subatomics.

The intersection of 2 orthogonal planes determines our Material Universe.

Both material planes behave automatically and are not self-referential.

The Atomic World and the Subatomic World are orthogonal planes.

Misbehaving Subatomics: Electrons & Photons

How can the unitary Subatomic World be disobedient?

Obedient Equations, Either-or Logic, & Matter: A Perfect Fit

2 subatomics well-behaved, 2 ill-behaved

Electrons & Photons don't fit into Traditional Categories.

Disobedient entities at the foundation of Obedient Material Universe

Feynman: Interactions of electrons and photons determine all of chemistry and biology

Consistent behavior of 4 subatomics leads to perfect predictability

Standard Definitions

Dictionary Definition: Electron's properties depend upon context, unlike Atoms.

Dictionary Definitions: Photon, Light

Light behaves as either a wave or a particle.

Feynman: Light behaves like a particle.

Photons and Atoms: Major divergence in Particle-like behavior

Due to divergences, must expand notion of particle.

Electrons, Photons & Life: Individual Unpredictability, Collective Predictability

Electrons: Individual behavior is unpredictable; General behavior is predictable.

Non-human Life: Individual behavior is unpredictable; General behavior is predictable.

General behavior: Electrons perfectly predictable, Life predictable, Humans not.

Disobedient Subatomics and Life diverge with Obedient Atoms on Individual Predictability

Electrons, Living Algorithm & Humans context-based; Atoms content-based

Electron: context-based

Atoms are pure content, as one of the most permanent Essences in the Universe.

Both Living Algorithm and Electron are context-based.

Environmental Context, not internal Content, determines Human Behavior.

Electrons, Photons & Humans: The Probability of Behavior

Squaring electron's amplitude determines behavior probability.

Squaring Photon's amplitude arrow determines behavior probability.

Squaring Human's behavior amplitude arrow determines behavior probability.

Probability not required for the certainty of our Atom-based world.

3. The Disobedient Subatomic World

2: Articles
3. Sections

Subatomic World is Disobedient relative to Space & Energy

Space & Energy different Inside & Outside of Atom

Space: Continuous on Atom’s Outside; Discontinuous Inside

Energy: Continuous Outside; Quantized Inside

Subatomic World: Orthogonal Plane, not Building Blocks

Disobedient subatomic world informs our atom-based world.

Building block logic: Building block laws and substance same as structure

Until the 20th century, Building block logic ruled.

Subatomic world overturns building block logic.

Atoms are the building blocks of the material world.

Electrons and Photons are not the building blocks of the Atom-based World

Intersection of Orthogonal planes (atoms and subatomics) determines Matter's behavior.

Intersection of orthogonal planes (information and matter) determines living behavior.

4. Particles as Information Packets

2: Articles
3. Sections


Tantalizing Questions

Our continuous and definitive Atom-based world defines obedience.

The quantized and probabilistic subatomic world is disobedient.

2 Subatomic entities, photons and electrons, don't behave like traditional particles.

How must we expand the notion of particle to include electrons & photons?

Electrons & Photons, as information packets

Schrödinger’s wave equation reveals probable information about electron.

Plank’s Quantum Constant constrains Wave Information

Information Pulse reveals Spatial Location or Temporal Movement

Substance/Inertia exhibit parallel logical structure to Momentum/Position.

Sight-driven Science uncomfortable with auditory logic of Information Packets

Constructing a new category box for electrons and photons is an uncomfortable proposition.

Electrons & Photons behave ambiguously.

Despite ambiguities, Physicists refer to subatomic entities as ‘particles’ or ‘objects’.

Sight-driven Science comfortable with visual nature of waves and particles

Everyone has seen waves & particles. Who has seen information packets?

We regularly experience information packets via sound: Words & Music

Electrons and Atoms: Significant Differences regarding Position and Location

We can see particles in our atom-based world.

Particles in our atom-based world can stop and start.

Sight lends credence to reality

We can't see electrons and photons. We hear their effects.

The Logic of Sound vs. the Logic of Sight

Sound and sight are different forms of evidence.

Sound is transitory; Sight is permanent

Sound is dynamic. Sight is static.

Sound requires time duration for meaning. Sight captures a moment.

Sound requires context. Sight relies upon permanent content.

Ephemeral, context-based sound doesn't convey permanent essence of sight.

Auditory Information is Mental in nature, not Physical.

Atom-based world obedient to logic of sight. Electrons and Photons are disobedient.

Electrons, Photons, and Sound only exist as transitory information pulses.

Sound and meaning are self-referential, hence disobedient.


5. Partial Reflection: Spinning Arrows as Info Packets

2: Articles
3. Sections


Life, Living Algorithm, and Subatomic World share info packets in common.

Info Packets best understood through context-based Logic of Sound.

Partial Reflection: from Light Waves to Particulate Photons

Partial Reflection, a common experience via transparent medium: glass or water.

If 4% reflection for single pane, then 8% for 2 panes?

Experiments instead show a periodic fluctuation in Percentage Reflection.

Newton: Partial Reflection has nothing to due with surface irregularities.

Wave theory provides satisfactory explanation for centuries

Experimental evidence regarding single photons confutes wave theory.

Internal ‘wheels and gears’ theory of photon ‘particles’ rejected.

Feynman’s Mathematical Technique determines What happens, not Why.

If it doesn’t have an edge, ‘how does the photon make up its mind’?

Feynman skips ‘why’ to answer ‘what’ happens.

Nature’s whys are incomprehensible.

Feynman sees a mathematical pattern in the photon data.

Still don’t know how photons ‘decide what to do’.

Feynman’s Arrows: Probability Amplitudes

Squaring the Arrow yields the Probability of the Event.

Arrows are Probability Amplitudes or Events

Arrows are Vectors, where Addition & Multiplication are simple Visual Procedures

Spinning Arrows as Evidence for Info Packet Hypothesis

Determining the Arrow’s Direction

Nothing to do with Photon’s Physical Attributes

Spinning Arrows determine Direction

Spinning Probability Amplitudes – Information Packets

Spinning Arrow Technique Works

Interaction of Probability Amplitudes generates Interference Patterns.

To make sense of findings: Photons as Info Packets

Info Packets open the door to the Mind/Body connection. Yikes!

Examples of Spinning Information from Words & Music

Spinning Information doesn’t make sense to Science because it can’t be visualized

Understanding Spinning Info from a Sound-based model

Inclination of Listener’s Reflective Surface determines meaning of verbal information.

Spin Doctors place spin on verbal information to determine meaning

Temporal Distance determines the Meaning of Musical Information

Listener’s Reflective Surface determines if the Musical Information is Digested or Reflected.

Information Packet Model comes with a cost.

6. Light Spreading: Subatomic Event Arrows as Info Packets

2: Articles
3. Sections

Primacy of Event Arrow over Individual Photon


Only have Info Packets, no Photons

Feynman: Arrows as Probability Amplitudes, not Photons

Individual Photons secondary to Event Arrow

Feynman: All subatomic objects obey arrow rules.

Spreading Photons as Evidence for Info Packet Hypothesis

Feynman defines dimensions of arrow event: Spreading light

Spreading Light notion required to model Light’s features

Atom-based Matter does not spread out over time.

Computing the probability of throwing a 7 with 2 dice

Probability reveals nothing about physical nature of dice.

Light behaves as a wave in normal circumstances, as a particle in extreme circumstances.

To account for extreme circumstances, light spreads over time.

Must take all directions into account, not just straight-ahead

Due to inertia, atom-based particles move in 1 direction only

Photon as a Information Packet

Info Packet is unrealized potential

Info Packets are virtual, until they interact with the environment.

Info Packets reach out in all directions to maximize possibility of realizing potentials.

Conceptual Metaphor based in Sound

Cognitive Science: Meaning from Metaphorical Relationship with our Sensory/Motor Networks

Auditory Information & Neural Networks interact to create emotional meaning.

The meaning of Music & Words only becomes real in the listening.

Photons give up Information to Measurement Devices

Measuring Devices ‘interfere’ with subatomic entities.

1% of photons make it through a small hole, no matter if the hole is straight ahead or not.

Both holes open: photons create interference pattern (0% to 4%)

Measuring device at openings: Simple addition (2%). No interference

Feynman: “Strange results have no model.”

Materialist mindset blocks understanding.

As an info packet, the photon gives up information when it is measured.

Information of Sound given up when it comes in contact with surfaces.

To experience Music, Listener must reference the past.

Familiarity with a musical composition leads to anticipation of the future.

Self-referencing of Time: a crucial feature of Music Appreciation

Music weaves Past Experiences with the Present

Probabilistic arrows indicate subatomic and musical behavior.

Thoughts, as quanta of mental energy

What can the subatomic realm tell us about thoughts?

Thoughts: quanta of mental energy that interact with quanta of physical energy

Context: a factor in Thoughts & Subatomic Behavior

No objectivity in the subatomic world because the Observer is part of the process.

Objectivity a possibility in our atom-based world

Concentrated Information of atom-based ‘particles’ only give up negligible info to device.

Thoughts, as info packets, are dependent upon context.

Example: Science’s Sight-based context blocks Sound-based understanding.

Science’s presumed Objectivity blocks progress.

Supposedly Objective Sensory Organs provide us with Subjective Information.

Thoughts & Subatomic behavior subject to Observer’s Context

Nonlinear nature of Subatomics & Thoughts

Subatomics & the Random Thought Generator

Techniques to still the mind, not eliminate random thoughts

Mechanistic Rules determine the Dimensions of Subatomic Probability Arrows

Behavior influences the Dimensions of Human Probability Arrows

Probability arrows of human world are ever changing.

Individual Behavioral Arrows: Atoms 1 possibility; Subatomics & Humans Multiple

Collective Behavioral Arrows: Atoms & Subatomics 1 possibility; Humans multiple

Mind Intent generates a Pulse of Experience, which can change behavior.

We can choose where to focus the mental energy of our Attention.

Sustaining Attention generates a Pulse of Experience or Organization.

Sustaining Attention upon a negative thought chain generates an Experience that increases the probability amplitude.

Choosing to ignore a negative thought chain decreases the probability amplitude.

Sustained Attention generates an Experience which influences the Probability Amplitude

Living Algorithm generates Experience Pulse & Probability Amplitudes
